For Montreal, it is hard to say. I expect that there will be people camping out for a few days for that one, so I am getting there very early on the 8th, and just hoping to get into the pit.

About 10-12 minutes. It's on the same line, therefore you don't have to make any changes !

I couldn't take pictures because of the strong winds that blew over Montreal today, but the end product should look a bit like CANAD Inns Stadium in Winnipeg.
I'll keep you all updated as the Claw makes its way in there !
Thank you!!! I am looking forward to more of your posts!!!

That's not true, necessarily. If you don't care where you are in the ring, you can show up mid afternoon. I know plenty of people who waltz in to the inner ring either by getting into line mid afternoon or even showing up right when the gates open up at 5:30 or so.

Did we ever figure out how many GA's were sold for these shows? I remember it coming up a thread or 2 (or 3!) ago but I don't think we ever got the official number

^ Just checked the Evenko site. They updated their Events Page. 80,000 people are expected at each show... Weren't we guessing between 40,000 and 50,000???

Just checked the public transit information site as well and it has been updated. Looks like the only way to get to the site will be with the metro and the only way to get out will be either shuttle busses or the Metro. You will be able to purchase a special U2 transit pass so you can get to the concert site quickly and also leave the site quickly.

Reason I asked is because I've never had a 'real' bagel outside of NY...they're always strangely bread-y and more like the kind you buy in the frozen food section. So I should try a Montreal one!

Here's the link for the public transportation site...

U2 - STM

Thinking about all those on people on the metro at the same time makes me a little
